Auburn Public Safety Services is holding its annual Auburn Toy Drive campaign designed to assist families in the Auburn community by providing Christmas gifts to children in need, ages 2 through 8.

Anyone wishing to register a child to receive a gift can do so at the Auburn Police Department at 141 N. Ross St. Registration days are Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

The last day to register will be Oct. 26, 2022. To participate in the program and receive assistance, a parent or legal guardian must provide their picture ID, the child’s birth certificate and a copy of a current utilities bill: light bill, water bill or lease/rental agreement.

Anyone wishing to donate to the Auburn Toy Drive can drop off an unwrapped gift at any Auburn Fire Department station or the Auburn Police Department until Dec. 3, 2022.

Individuals purchasing a gift to be donated can leave it unwrapped and drop it off at one of the listed locations. Helpers will sort the gifts into age-appropriate categories; delivery is scheduled during the week before Christmas. During this holiday season please remember those who may be less fortunate. All donations are extremely important. As always, be reminded that no monetary donations can be accepted, but any purchased gift is appreciated.

Questions regarding the Auburn Toy Drive campaign can be directed to Debra Hoyett at the Auburn Police Department at 334-501-3117.
